We watched them come and watched them go
Flashing lights of blue and red…
Heroes of our community, paying tribute to our dead.
They thanked us for our honor
With waves, salutes or smiles
Shedding tears along with us, as cars stretched out for miles.
We felt it such an honor to send them on their way,
With thoughts and prayers, care and love
As we grieved with them today.
We cannot help but feel the loss of all the fallen four,
But the strength of those remaining
Gave us so much more!
A community of solidarity, awareness and deep pride,
For those who serve us with their lives
In our hearts they all abide!
